NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A nurse was arrested at Centennial Hospital over the weekend after police said she came to work drunk.

Police said the nurse, Brandy Leigh Dalton, 41, was sent home from work on Saturday for allegedly being drunk.

According to the arrest warrant, employees at the hospital realized Dalton was intoxicated, so they sent her home in a taxi.

Police said she returned to work a short time later through the front entrance of the hospital.

When police searched Dalton, they said they found a marijuana pipe and marijuana residue in a pipe in her shirt pocket.

She is facing charges of drug possession and trespassing.
